Stayed here for a few nights and was this ever a mistake. First day when we walked in the 2 lady's at front desk gave us a price and we agreed to it. That is when they asked us to prepay for the entire stay. When i questioned the logic behind it they explained that the entire motel was sold out and they wanted to make sure they don't turn anyone away to find out that we are not staying.
After a few minutes they got very aggressive and they started to shout and throw my money at my face. I knew it was time to leave and grabbed my suitcases and went out to get a cab but Since my friend was very tired and didn't want to go somewhere else he convinced me to prepay the entire stay. This is where the nightmare starts.
After spending the first night we asked for our money back so we could leave but they receptionist told us that would not be possible since we had prepaid. This is the reason they make sure you prepay your stay because they know for sure you wont stay past a night.
Here are the cons and pros:
1. Pros = Non
a) Breakfast is included in the price but there is only 4 tables in the "dining room" so chances are you will have to wait for someone else to finish. I read somewhere in their website were there are 15 different room category's but somehow they only manage to have 4 tables at their dining room.
b) Internet is extremely slow and only available intermittently during the day. The chance you can use it is next to non.
c) rooms are old, outdated and full of roaches. The motel actually provides you with roach spray in all the rooms. I know this because the can in our room had the room number written on it with a marker. There are also roach traps under all the beds.
Most the roaches in our room came out of the bathroom and they had holes behind the mirrors where they hid inside.
d) Motel is situated in the gay district of Pattaya. The motel is also beside a transsexual strip club that seems to be ran by the hotel because they advertise for it in the motel lobby and elevator. When you first check in they give you free drink coupons to the club. Hotel also has direct access to the club. Don't have any issues with gay people but don't necessarily want to be in the gay district neither.
e) For our entire stay they had renovations in front of our room. Started at 8 am till 6pm. They used the jack hammer the entire time.
f) Service is nonexistent. The entire staff is rude and not interested at all in anything you might need or want.
g) swimming pool is very dirty and not usable. It seems like no one cleans it at all.
h) There are air conditioners in the rooms but they are very loud and if you want to leave them on overnight then it would be impossible to sleep with.
I) Entire place is very dirty. Starting from the lobby all the way to the rooms. Elevator is very slow, smells of fumes and filthy.
J) For my entire stay , there was a major leak in the lobby roof so the entire place was covered with bed sheets and water flooded the floors.
K) This place is supposed to be non smoking but everyone smokes and they had over 4 ashtrays in my room. I am assuming they want you to smoke as they have a "special fee" they charge if you smoke in the room, otherwise it makes no sense to provide multiple ashtrays in a non smoking room/motel.
All and all this place is like a bad dream and it Goes without saying that i would not recommend this motel to anyone.
